Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker's 2014 U.S. Senate campaign submitted organizing papers to the Federal Election Commission earlier this week.
The documents were filed on Monday, officially designating "Cory Booker for Senate" as the popular mayor's principal campaign committee. Booker announced his intention to run last month, even though incumbent Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) has not said if he will seek another term. A poll released Thursday suggested that New Jersey Democrats strongly prefer Booker over Lautenberg.
